AutoCAD 2013 :: Cursor Color Toggle In Paperspace?

Aug 20, 2012

In Autocad 2012 the white cursor automatically toggles to black when moved onto the white background of paperspace. This does not occur in 2013. Imported the sysvaribles from 2012 into 2013. Cursor still does not toggle.

AutoCad :: Paperspace Background Color In 2013 For Mac

Feb 19, 2013

I have a mac. I am trying to change the background color in paperspace from the eye straining white to a neutral grey. Everywhere I search I am told that the answer is in options>display and then change it to what ever you want. However, mac has preferences instead of options and no display tab. And in all the tabs i do have, there is no obvious alternative.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Change The Cursor Color In Command Line?

Mar 5, 2013

Is there a way to change the cursor color in the command line in AutoCAD 2013?

When I change the background (active command) to black, the cursor blends into it and not visible. Can’t see where is my current position when editing coordinates. The command background was black and text white for the last 10 years for 20 drafters; we would like to keep it this way

AutoCAD 2013 :: Toggle Between Coordinates And Last Input

Jan 9, 2014

How do I get the last input to come up when pressing the up arrow key?  Say I'm drawing a line & input @10,10.  When I press the up arrow, the coordinates come up.  How do I get @10,10 to come up?  I've changed it before, but I can't remember how & I can't think of what to search for.

AutoCAD 2013 :: How To Toggle Menu Mode

Jan 8, 2014

Somehow I activated a mode where when I click on an object, if there are several objects there, it will bring up a little menu to pick which one I want, similar to Inventor if you hover or say "Select other...". How do I toggle this mode? Turns out I like it sometimes but usually I don't need it.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Paperspace Viewports

Mar 30, 2012

when it comes to viewports in paperspace in 2013, due to the nature of my work i have several layout drawings all drawn on top of each other and all with ther own txt and dims etc, which again is all on top of each other making it impossible to work in model space, for this reason i work in paperspace within a viewport but now i have upgraded to 2013 while i am in mid command e.g. dimension and zoom into first point then zoom back out and in again to second point, by this time i have been kicked out of the viewport and just in paperspace so cant complete the command, doesnt always happen?

AutoCAD 2013 :: Scaling Objects Correctly To Fit In Paperspace?

Oct 26, 2012

how you get objects, say i drew a rectangle, to the correct size from model space to paper space. And why when you change the dimensions of an object to meters from milimeters, does it not change the size of the object on paperspace when it's at the same scale.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Dimensions Not Snapping To Snaps In Paperspace

I have just upgraded to 2013 from 2012. When dimensioning my viewports in paperspace, I will snap using the linear or aligned dimension and it will appear to snap to the first point, but when I snap on the other end, it will go somewhere way off the viewport or give me a "0" dim.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Color Of Paperspace Outside Page Size

Dec 11, 2011

The color of the paper space outside of the page layout is a gray-white very bright that would  not allow the white lines and white letters to be seen.  I have looked at the Options dialog to see if that color can be changed, but I could not find the name of that area outside the per layout ( I have my paper layout to black, which is fine, but I do not know how to change the areas outside the paper).  This bright color came with AutoCAD 2012.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Defaults To Paperspace While Drawing In Model Space?

Mar 25, 2013

We have just loaded AutoCAD 2013 from previously using Version 2012, and I am experiencing a very distubing phenomenon.  While manipulating the commands in any vieport window in Model Space, the program automatically 'jumps' into Paper Space causing an interruption in work-flow, and losing any command which was in progress during the time. For example, if a number of objects were copied with the intention of placing them elsewhere within the same or another paper space window in 'model space' , the program would jump to paper space and the items would be lost, with the necessity of selecting them all over again.  This can happen several times in a row.

When I attach a titleblock as an xref in paperspace, it is not lined up on my page that I have set up. It attaches to the upper right hand corner of my screen and I have to manually move it on top of my paperspace. I know there is a way to have them automatically line up.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Model Documentation Generated Views In Paperspace Layout Tabs

Dec 12, 2012

My group and I are getting an infrequent but annoying problem with Model Documentation (MD) generated views in paperspace layout tabs.  We all on autocad 2013, with sp1.1 installed on x64 machines. 

We are seeing objects/ blocks showing in the MD views (viewbase created) in the layout that are no longer in model space.  One common factor in this is that these objects seem to always be externally referenced (xref) files that have been either unloaded or completely detached (both cases purges preformed afterwards to wipe any remaining blocks made no difference). In this latest case the ghost objects show up twice (we needed 2 of the same xref) at what appears to be the correct old coordinates. 

We have no work around for this and when this occurs we either have to revert to an older version from vault or create a new dwg, port all information over and recreate all views.  The interesting thing about this problem is that if we revert to an older version from vault, the ghosts do not reappear/ reoccur at the same commands they appeared at previously.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Freeze And Cursor Disappears?

Mar 13, 2013

This has been occurring numerous time more than it should. While in a drawing mid command, panning, typing anything pretty much my cad freezes. The rest of my computer is fine everything works properly but CAD is frozen and when i bring my pointer into the program it disappears. I can even open cad up again and the old CAD will stay open. It shows the drawings i have open on the tab bar and i can’t close out of them. I have a computer that’s more than capable to work properly.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Cursor Stuck To X-axis

Jan 16, 2013

So I was working in 3D and I guess I pressed some kind of button or something that caused my 3D cursor to only move along the x=0 line. If I move my cursor up, it moves it lightly sideways. It stops when I move into side/top/front views, but as soon as I pan into 3D view, the cursor only appears along the x-axis. I'm probably overlooking a simple AutoCAD command, but I'm a new user and I can't find the answer anywhere in the manual or on the internet.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Freeze When Cursor Goes Over 3D Solid

Dec 3, 2012

Everything works fine until the center of my cursor passes over a 3d solid, the cursor then disappears, the spinning circle icon spins for sometimes minutes, and the display greys over, and I cannot click 'ESC' or Ctrl + C to abort this cycling. I have to wait, sometimes 30 secs, sometimes 2 minutes for it to stop freezing and the screen returns to normal. 

As I work in 3d solids a lot, this makes Acad 2013 unusable to me. Acad 2007 was not an issue with this problem I still have it installed as I have to revert back to 2007 to do anything with 3d solids in it.
